WEEK OF NOVEMBER 20-24

Hi Grade Two Families! 

I believe my draft of this week's blog was accidentally published, so I apologize for any confusion it may have caused. Although I'm sure we would all love another long weekend :) Thank you for being understanding as I'm pretty sure this won't be the last time technology and I do a little song and dance. 

For Card Game Friday, we built card towers... or at least we tried to! We looked at different pictures of card towers and watched some experts build some amazing sculptures. We were all feeling inspired but it turns out building card towers is hard! A handful of the class was successful, but for majority, we learned we're going to need a lot more practice. Instead of feeling down, we focused on the power of YET and uncovering GRIT. So while most of us have yet to build a card tower, we learned some things take time and we need to keep trying! 

Thank you for sending in the toy cars! We played with different materials to make the fastest and slowest ramp for our cars. In doing so, we learned about friction! We learned we definitely need friction otherwise we'd be sliding all over the place. Look for pictures soon via Class Dojo. 

Mrs. Moorehead sent an email about changes to parking in the back area. If your child can indepedently exit and enter the car, while the driver remains in their seat, please use the pick-up/ drop-off lane in the front of the school. It will lessen the cars at the back of the school and make it easier for those who need extra assistance. Thank you very much for your continued support on this. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
